Day 10 - Ten Happy Days

Friday, 24 April 2015 / 7 comments

It is Day 10 of my 10,000 follower celebration. It has been loads of fun, but unfortunately the end did not pan out as I expected. I had hoped to present Day 10 to you 4 days ago. A rather angry cyclonic storm got in between me and the computer and I am now into my fifth day of no electricity. 

Thankfully my husband's workplace had power and internet restored yesterday and I was able to get here to post this for you. I have to say, I could get VERY used to working in a lovely quiet office rather than the kitchen bench at home! It is so different to be working in a quiet uninterrupted workspace. 

These Scrappy Teddies were in fact ready for you four days ago, and in my store, but you may not have noticed as I did not get a chance to put my post up before the power went out.

I have updated this set as part of my celebration and the set now includes lots of colourful teddies as well as the original brown ones. 

I have also made a new set of  Scrappy Stars. This is a versatile set that will help brighten your classroom and resources. 

Find both sets in my TpT store, by clicking on the image thumbnails. 

Thank you so much - from the very bottom of my heart - for helping me to celebrate 10,000 followers. I don't know where to begin in explaining how much this online teacher-blogosphere has meant to me over the last few years. Teaching can be, in some ways, a very lonely job and often we are in a position to be criticised from many directions. 

I have found the online community to be a warm, friendly and uplifting community. It has been a joy to have a place that has balanced out my other experiences. Quite a few years ago, a colleague said to me 'you may need to look further than your own school' - how true those words were. 

I am thankful for every challenge I have faced - each of them helped bring me here - to finding my place. 

Thank you for being a part of my place here and letting me be a part of yours.
